Date Sun, 07 May 2017 20:38:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OFBIZ-9346?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16000059#comment-16000059

Jacques Le Roux commented on OFBIZ-9346:

Also I had the issue open and so did not see Michael's comment before submiting my comment.

I totally agree with
bq. If there is a vision for this, please share it with the community. It does not make sense
to be unspecific and mystical if you want to have these changes accepted.
Recently James's, Taher"s and  Michael's exchanges on dev ML about Tomcat ("Loading standard
web application") shows how much good explanations and sharing can help to get to a better

But I don't totally agree with 
bq. As said earlier, I don't think it is a good idea to replace context specific labels with
common labels. It reduces the flexibility to translate labels differently in different contexts
and applications. We discussed this earlier and the conclusion was to avoid this.
There are cases that this is indeed true. But I found that most of the time we face duplication
and simply need to merge translations and put them at the upper level. It was typically the
case here... so far...
